Parents urged to attend H1N1 vaccine forums

by Janjeera Hail

Guam Department of Public Health representatives will conduct four presentations next week as they attempt to educate parents of schoolchildren about the H1N1 Virus vaccine.  Agency Spokesperson Cindy Hanson says the presentations will provide parents with consent forms for onsite school vaccination programs, as well as information about potential side effects.

The presentations will begin next week Tuesday for the Lagu District at Okkodo High School.  On Wednesday a presentation will be given at Tamuning Elementary School for the Luchan District.  On Thursday, it will be held at the George Washington High School for Kattan District students, and Friday at Southern High School for the Haya District.

All the presentations will begin at 6 o'clock in the evening.
